British architect reveals designs for second-tallest building in China

British architecture studio run by Terry Farrell has unveiled plans to build 560-metre-high skyscraper to become one of China’s tallest buildings.

The architect claims that Evergrande tower will become the second-tallest building in China, although construction has already begun for nine other towers that will exceed 500 metres, including Shanghai Tower at 623m by Gensler and KPF’s 660m Ping An Finance Centre.

Farrells 442m Kingkey 100 is Shenzhen’s tallest tower to date. He said the skyscraper will push the boundaries of sustainable design for high-rise buildings.

He said: “Together with our skyscraper projects in Beijing and Shanghai, we are building on the experience gained with KK100 in Shenzhen, which set new standards for mixed use and high-rise living and working.”

The tower will become part of an 11 hectare residential and office development in Jihan, the capital of Shandong Province.

The base of the tower will feature a sunken shopping mall offering residential space, restaurants and entertainment facilities.
